(CNN) – It's amazed me over the years how a few words spoken by a presidential candidate potentially can have an enormous impact. I've been thinking a lot about that while covering the Republican race for the White House in recent months. The candidates are under enormous scrutiny – as they should be. They understandably have to be very precise.
I've been especially sensitive to the words uttered by candidates since my interview with then-Vice President Al Gore in March 1999. He was already running for the Democratic presidential nomination. Here's the exchange that caused an uproar and certainly had an impact on his eventual general election race against then-Texas Governor George W. Bush.FULL STORY

(CNN) - Former Vice President Al Gore will not face prosecution on an allegation of sexual assault from 2006.
The allegation, brought forth by Molly Hagerty, claims Gore sexually abused her during a professional massage at the Hotel Lucia in Portland on October 24, 2006.
The Portland Police Bureau did not recommend prosecution "due to a lack of credible evidence," according to the Multnomah County district attorney's office.
"After evaluating the materials submitted by PPB I have concluded that I agree with the assessment that a sustainable criminal case does not exist," Senior Deputy District Attorney Don Rees wrote in a memo Friday. "Ms. Hagerty's detailed statement ... is insufficient to support a criminal charge given other contradictory evidence, conflicting witness statements, credibility issues, lack of forensic evidence and denials by Mr. Gore."
Gore's office in Nashville, Tennessee, released a statement saying the former vice president was pleased with the finding.
"Mr. Gore unequivocally and emphatically denied this accusation when he first learned of its existence three years ago," the statement reads. "He respects and appreciates the thorough and professional work of the Portland authorities and is pleased that this matter has now been resolved."
